Hello Sweet Friend!

Today's post is for the Cut It Up Challenge
Our Theme this fortnight is
This Makes Me Happy.

My card was made for my BFF
and posted  to her with a few dies
that I had doubled up on. 
She has gifted me so many double ups
so it was my turn to send her mine - she laughed
which made me Happy!
The stencilled background is from Art Anthology
inked with Tim's Saltwater Taffy
The SU gingko die cuts camd from a panel
in my bits box then die cut the frame.
Added sentiment and adhered to pink card stock
onto SU Mossy Meadow.
Head over and check out what the Designers chose 
as inspiration that made them Happy
and join in by adding yours to our Gallery.

Thinking of You...

We have added a New Challenge this year 
to our Weekly Themes at Just Us Girls 
 and I am thrilled to be our First HOST!
It's Anything Goes using a STENCIL - 
and don't we all have loads to choose from?

How fortunate I was that with our first challenge of the year
I made two cards. This is the other one and coming in handy
as I have had hubby in hospital on and off for a few weeks
so from playing Nurse and home chores play time
was on the backburner.

I do love adding texture to a stencil as I have done here.
I used my Magical's letting the colours soak into the background.
Added some white thread behind the die cut
and cut the sentiment several time for dimension.
Popped onto white card base and my stencilled card is complete.

Head over and see what our Guest Stef 
and the Team created with their stencils and
come join in the fun.
Hope to see yours in the Gallery.
A Big Thank You to Stef 
for sharing her talents with us this month.
